Anatomy of Terror: Understanding Religious Violence




"Anatomy of Terror: Understanding Religious Violence"

Jessica Stern - lecturer in public policy, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University

Stern disputes the theses that terrorism has little impact and that government policies should simply be aimed at reducing fear. Mentioning a psychometric model that identifies 18 variables associated with disproportionate dread, Stern emphasizes that there is a clear difference in the ways that individuals and governments should respond to certain types of risks. She also discusses risk factors--both at the global level and at the individual level--linked to terrorism. The presentation concludes with a question-and-answer session.
